Duterte Turns Back On US, Orders Philippines To Buy Weapons From Russia And China

In an abrupt departure from his nation’s longstanding military reliance on the U.S., Duterte said the Philippines would pursue "independent" policies separate from US interests in the region, and ordered his defense secretary to seek military gear from suppliers in China and Russia. In another dramatic shift, he also said that the Philippines would stop patrolling the South China Sea alongside the U.S. Navy, to avoid upsetting Beijing.

US To Provide Israel With Record $38 Billion In Military Aid

While the US relationship with Saudi Arabia can be described, perhaps courtesy of the latter's donations to the Clinton campaign, as one of preferential treatment when it comes to arms deals, the relationship with Israel is even simpler. As Reuters reports, the US and Israel reached an agreement on a record new package of at least $38 billion in U.S. military aid to be supplied to Israel over the next decade.

Last Chance For The "Deplorables"

I think this will be the last election if I don’t win ... because you’re going to have people flowing across the border, you’re going to have illegal immigrants coming in and they’re going to be legalized and they’re going to be able to vote, and once that all happens, you can forget it.” Politically and demographically, America is at a tipping point.

A Homerun For The Donald - Attack The Fed's War On Savers, Workers And The Unborn (Taxpayers)

"Indeed, the Fed is waging an insensible and outrageous war on savers, workers and future taxpayers - even as it pleasures the 1% with fantastic financial windfalls from the Wall Street casino. Now that is a rigged system. And that is a beltway evil that merits the Donald’s unrelenting attack on behalf of the citizens of Flyover America who have been left behind in their tens of millions."

Bloomberg Tries To Explain Why Allowing 9/11 Victims To Sue Saudis Is Un-American

Given the Obama administration's (and Hillary's campaign financing) vehment dissent over The House and The Senate's unequivocal confirmation of a bill allowing 9/11 victims' families to sue Saudi Arabia, the mainstream media has been unleashed to change the narrative. First, CNN's Wolf Blitzer explained the bill could create economic collapse in America; and now Bloomberg's Editorial Board suggest it will "allow anti-American sentiment to flourish," potentially expose state secrets and "potential monetary costs," and "leave the U.S. vulnerable to on the global stage."

"Clinton Foundation Is Charity Fraud Of Epic Proportions", Analyst Charges In Stunning Takedown

"The Clinton Foundation appears to be a rogue charity that has neither been organized nor operated lawfully from inception to date-as you will grow to realize, it is a case study in international charity fraud, of mammoth proportions...  Foundation entities are part of a network that has defrauded donors and created illegal private gains of approximately $100 billion in combined magnitude since 1997."

America The Illiterate

We live in two Americas. One America, now the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth. The other America, which constitutes the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system. This America, dependent on skillfully manipulated images for information, has severed itself from the literate, print-based culture. It cannot differentiate between lies and truth.

Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement

There is absolutely no chance of retaking our current government by working within the system. To be blunt, the system is now structured to protect itself and nothing else. To think that it can be influenced through “elections” is an absurd notion. For the past decade, though, we have seen a powerful shift in the public psyche towards a realization that our government is built upon a fraudulent paradigm; the false left versus the false right.
